Hi, i have a HP DL380 GEN8 Server with 256GB Ram, 40 CPU Cores and 2xRaid 1, 8TB HDDs 7.2K. (8x3,5" disksheph) We use that System for trainings. Our typical workload is that all user do the same things nearly at the same time. We think that our bottleneck is the disk system. I had checked the mem and CPU usage wihle the system is under load. We had less 5% hardwareusage. But the Keystokes in the alpine LXCs shell was somtetimes very slow (30 parallel user). We had used ssh and the proxmox browser console. No difference. So we plan to change to raid 5 with 7xDisks with 1 hotspare SSD.
Have anyone a better idea or a hint to save money and time but get also a better performance?
